At The Table

Lankershim Arts Center
5108 Lankershim Blvd. North Hollywood

Six friends head out of the city on their annual weekend retreat. With no social media, no cell phones, no internet allowed at all, this leaves them with one thing to do … look up from their screens and talk to each other. When the liquor starts flowing and the tongues loosen, no conversation is uneventful and no topic is off-limits. In these polarizing times, what does it mean to come to the table and at what cost? Will it bring us together or reveal how far apart we really are?

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Director Judith Moreland and her fine actors nail down the laughs and the pathos in Perlman's meandering, passionate play, which has slice-of-life dialogue that sounds as if it were lifted from a late-night bull session. Perhaps the characters' prevalent inebriation explains their struggles with articulate argument. All the same, don't parse "Table" too closely. You might lose yourself in its unsynthesized topicality."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...Booze and pot lower inhibitions, loosen tongues, and reveal cracks in the fifteen-year-long friendship of a quartet of 30somethings in Michael Perlman’s At The Table, a Road Theatre Company Los Angeles Premiere that proves as edge-of-your-seat compelling as it is provocatively button-pushing."

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Very few, if any, of these characters are likable - but far more importantly, they're real. They are your well-meaning but uninformed family member, your blissfully politically unaware friend, maybe even you at your least sensitive. And yes, there is something ironic about a (probably) privileged audience applauding a piece that so deftly knocks them off their pedestal and reminds them that "there are real things going on in the world." But if you walk out of At the Table patting yourself on the back for your political correctness, then you've missed the point."

Accessibly Live Off-Line - Recommended

"...Directed by Judith Moreland, AT THE TABLE's moral could be labeled as everyone has their perceptions in common, while their diversities can either bond or tear apart. Then again, serving quality wine doesn't mean one will have quality time! Dinner party hosts-you have been warned!"
